What Our Readers Say



New Online Services

Each annual subscription is approved for 10 credits. This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the Essential Areas and Policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint sponsorship of CMEsolutions and Chrestomathic Press, Inc. The CMEsolutions is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The CMEsolutions designates this enduring material educational activity for a maximum of 10 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Each lesson in your subscription includes a CME exam consisting of 10 multiple-choice questions. To receive credit for a lesson, you must take the exam online or by mail and earn a score of 70% or better.

Our new Online Exam service will create a personal exam just for you, with options for different sets of questions as you direct. See your test scores immediately, take make-up exams, and check your Progress Reports online. Your credits earned can be automatically reported directly to ARDMS and CCI for you on completion of each exam.

The Ultrasound Cafe provides online discussion groups for every CME paper included in your subscription, as well as for all our back issues. Post your comments and questions about each paper at the Ultrasound Cafe, and see what other subscribers have to say. This free service is also open to the ultrasound community, providing maximum opportunities for you to exchange information and ideas about important topics in diagnostic medical ultrasound.

Online Subscriber Services give you convenient access to all the most-requested services, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, from anywhere in the world.

Search our online Ultrasound Library for papers on ultrasound topics of special interest to you, written by your favorite authors. The Ultrasound Library includes all ultrasound papers published in the Today CME programs from 1995 to 2001.

For a complete description of all our new online services, please see our Subscribers Only page.

How the TODAY Programs Work

Each annual subscription includes ten papers specifically written for TODAY subscribers by experts in their fields.

Ten times each year, you receive a 12- to 24-page booklet via first class mail. An Online Edition of each paper is also posted in the Subscribers Only page of our Website. Many of the Online Editions include real-time imaging and other materials not included in the printed booklets. Occasionally, a special double issue approved for two CME credits may be issued in place of two separate papers.

Ten multiple-choice poststudy questions accompany each lesson. After studying the material at your convenience, you mark an answer card with your responses to the test and mail it to the publisher for confidential scoring.

New! Take your exams online instead, with many valuable options not available for answer cards submitted by mail. Your test results will be reported to you immediately, and you can check your confidential progress report online. For a complete description of our new Online Exam service, please see our Subscribers Only page.

Successful completion (a score of 70% or better) of a lesson earns you one CME credit, for a total of ten credits per annual subscription.

At your request, the publisher will report your credit earned directly to ARDMS or CCI as you complete each lesson. To receive this service, simply provide your registry number.

In December, you will receive a Certificate of Completion documenting the number of continuing education credits you have earned during the year.
